-- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com >>> from cnn world headquarters in atlanta, this is "cnn sunday morning." this is mile 26 and the marathon has become a sprint. the candidates' final push to get your vote. >>> the power is coming back and the gas is on the way, but some of sandy's victims are saying they're being ignored, and plunging temperatures are creating panic. >>> we talk about women as a social issue. excuse me, you know? half the population are not a social issue. >> she says it's dangerous war on u.s. soil and it could be decided by tuesday's election. my exclusive interview with feminist icon gloria staten isla island joochlt it is sunday, november 4th. good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. so glad you're with us. we start this morning with the presidential election just two days away. president obama and mitt romney seem to be squeezing every last frequent flyer mile out of this campaign. they've got a combined 16 stops in eight states before heading home, and we'll be there for all of it. our correspondents are spread across the states to bring you all the u
predicting i have vivictory fort obama, we have a former washington burro chief for cnn and a cnn contributor. "washington post" opinion section, it has prognosticators forecasting the election. almost everyone says president obama is going to win except for a gop strategist and the horse racing columnist. is there a group think going on at this point? >> i think so but it's based on other things. we know where barack obama is ahead and mitt romney is ahead and where things are too close to call and people can do the math. that's what you're thinking. >> in the one poll it's 48%/489%. i wonder if journalists are putting too much faith in these polls because thee are small leagues. >> i like that the horse racing columnist, he picks a favorite, right? sometimes when grow to the track, do you that. back in 2000 we didn't have a place to go to aggregate all of the polls. now view have access to so much data, so much state-level data that you can sit there and go state by state and actually have a somewhat more informed opinion about what's going to happen in ohio. so i see reliance on polls by j
in as many swing states as they can before tuesday. joining me now are cnn contributors. good morning to both of you. maria, i want to ask you first, is this about reaching undecided or uncommitted voters, or is this just about making sure that the people turn out on tuesday? >> well, there's no question that at this point, randi, the campaigns are focused on turning out their vote, turning out their bases, turning out all of those voters they've been in contact with for the past several months. everyone that they've been identifying as somebody who is voting their way or who at least is leaning their way, and, yes, it still is trying to get those two or three undecided voters who might still be out there, which is why you are seeing each of the candidates mad to making the strong contrast between themselves and their opponent, they're trying to keep it very positive. i have heard romney do that. i have heard the president do that. in terms of what they would do in the next four years and what they believe they have done up until now. so it's very interesting because they are splitting that,
's going to be very honest with us. he'll be here on cnn, 7:30, john husted. thank you very much, peter. appreciate it. >>> so the rover now from superstorm sandy and what would be an unprecedented move, election officials in storm-wracked new york, they're considering drawing the election past tuesday. interesting. we thought that might happen. voters could get an extra day to cast ballots. it was only common sense, people, that they would have to do something like this. that day would be scheduled as far as 20 days after election day. late yesterday, new jersey chris christie ordered that there be extended voting hours past the weekend. power is slowly being restored. more than 2 million people along the eastern seaboard are still without electricity, 700,000 of those are in new york making for a very cold night with temperatures expected to hover just above freezing. on a positive note, though, new york city public schools will reopen tomorrow. skool schools that were heavily damaged will remain closed, and students in those schools will be assigned temporary locations. some recovery
the polls will shed some light on who will win? forget about it. cnn editor paul stein hauser is here to do the math for us. paul, what do the national polls look like? >> two days to go, and we have four polls that are nonpartisan and came out since midnight. let's start with the abc news/"washington post." 48% of likely voters supporting the president. 48% supporting mitt romney. how about nbc news/"wall street journal," pretty much the same story, a 1 percentage point ahead of mitt romney. and pugh research center, they came out with obama with a 3 point advantage. that's within the sampling error. this is just about dead even as we get into the election. >> act what battleground states? >> that's the key here because this is not a popular vote, this is a battle for the states and their electoral votes. we look at those eight battleground states, polls in two of them just came out last night and nee're interesting. this is in des moines, iowa. you have the president with a five-point advantage there and nbc news "wall street journal" maris poll had results that were similar. romney start
a moment. i remember when you were filling in on cnn and interviewing former president clinton and said look, his business record is a good thing, has a lot of qualifications, but you say mitt romney is not qualified to be president. even those who oppose mitt romney, that's not a criticism that's often lodged. what disqualifies him from running the country in your judgment? >> i take colin powell's point of view, when he says that you know, the president rescueed the economy when it was failing, romney never gives him credit for that, which would be the fair thing to do. the president didn't inherit a healthy economy but a great recession caused by bush, two wars and previous administration. and also general powell talks about how that his foreign decisions, i'll keep troops in afghanistan, won't keep troops in afghanistan, these indesisive things are not what makes the word go around. i personally was with david cameron when mitt romney came to london to talk about the olympics and managed to insult the british. the british, our number one ally by criticizing their handling of the oly
battleground state where is the race just might be decided come tuesday. right now cnn estimates that nine states shown here on the make or break states. president obama or 34mitt romne to wing the who is. there's to the all important state of ohio with 18 electoral votes. virginia is one of those key battleground states as well. it's a state that favored barack obama back in 2008, but now the state's electoral votes are very much up for grabs. joining us from bluemont, virginia. virginia jones, what is on the minds of people there in virginia other than that pumpkin smashing you have been seeing all day at great country farms? >> that's right, fredericka, we have been here watching people do this. they call it pumpkin chunking, it's a place to come to bring your jack-o-lantern when you're through with it. virginia went for barack obama back in 2008. the margin of victory was a little more than eight points, versus a little more than six points for the entire state. we have been talking to people here all day, not all of them have been louden county, a pretty good cross section. listen to
with former mississippi governor haley barbour and cnn's dana bash. i'm candy crowley. this is "state of the union." >>> they are ships passing in the night and the day. this day mitt romney will be in iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia, while the president heads to new hampshire, south of florida, back up north to ohio, out west to colorado. monday romney goes to florida, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. obama counters with wisconsin, ohio, and a closing rally in iowa. the biggest surprise in that final 48 hours is romney's last minute bid in pennsylvania. polls in the state favor president obama, but not by as much as they once did. the romney campaign calls it expanding the electoral map. the obama campaign calls it a fairy tale. welcome to the parallel universe phase of the campaign. joining me is chicago mayor and former white house chief of staff rahm emanuel. let me start by showing a poll out of pennsylvania showing that the president's numbers have been slipping since september, and it's now looking like a four-point race in pennsylvania, which is inside the margin of e

to the show. with us new york magazine's john heilemann. cnn's gloria borger. the grio and msnbc's joy reid. and the huffington post howard fineman. first up, here we are in the time capsule. the weekend before the election asking why is this so close? still so unpredictable. both men face big hurdles to getting elected and that's why it's so close. president obama's got the jobless he inherited but can't quite beat. friday's new jobs report was encouraging but gains are still behind what we need. in a reflection of that, 62% of voters say they would like or want major changes in an obama second term. and on the other side, mitt romney's a challenge that normally blocks any presidential candidate. not even 30% of voters think he understands the average american. john, these are amazing handicaps. the unemployment situation still high. sort of remoteness of mitt romney from the voter. they both carry these burdens. is this why it's so close? >> yes. in one word. and i'll give you a few more. what the president has been unbootable incumbent for really his entire term in office. you think abou
, pennsylvania, and virginia. stay with cnn. we'll have live coverage from the campaign trail all day. >>> now for the latest on the superstorm, sandy. the storm is blamed for at least 111 deaths in the u.s. meantime shall as survivors try to recover, thousands of people still without power dealing with the cold now. forecasters say temperatures are expected to drop below freezing tonight and tomorrow evening. and sandwiches of comfort, we'll meet a lady making thousands to help out the victims. now back to fareed zakaria i can't gps. >>> sometimes the best way to think about big events, elections, crises, wars, is to step back and learn what we can from the past. that's why i brought together three of my favorite historians do just that and to help us figure out how the past can inform the present in this election. my guests are edmund morris. he has a new book out called "this living hand." sean wilentz also has a book out about ronald reagan and his times and many others including bob dylan and his times, a professor at princeton university and walter isaacson, the author of biographies of
the company's emphasis was on job creation told cnn, quote, we were in the business of creating value for investors. >> was job creation or making money the goal? >> well, every business is organized to create a return for the people who invest in the business. and as businesses are successful and profitable, they're able to hire people. and they can hire more people the more successful they are. businesses are created to provide a return to the owners or the investors. and it has a wonderful byproduct -- it employs more and more people. that's the nature of american enterprise. >> ten years into his run at bain capital, romney decided it was time to leave business for politics, just as his father had done. >> i will work very hard to make sure that everybody gets a good job. >> how are you feeling? >> energized, enthusiastic. >> romney's target, senator ted kennedy. not exactly starting at the bottom of the ladder there. >> i told my colleagues at work, don't clean up my desk or move into my office. i'll be spending time away from work, and it will be a leave of absence. but i really
in colorado. even cnn was reporting that the crowds were much smaller this year. >> but, tom, you're focused on the closing arguments. >> they are negative, about keeping the other guy out. it's not about enthusiasm with all due respect, mr. mayor, for the candidates on either side. there's great fear in the republican party that obama will get four more years. there's not a passion al love affair with mitt romney. there's been a lot of disappointment in your party with the president of the united states. on the other hand, there's greater fear that mitt romney is going to get into office. so more than any other time that i've been doing all of this, i have seen in the closing days fear take over. and more negative campaigning. it's not about me, it's about keeping the other guy out. i think that's what's going on here. >> savannah, we think about the question, why is it that incumbents lose? you go back to the first president bush. he had a problem with his base. no new taxes. he breaks that pledge. but also a down economy. jimmy carter has a down economy as well. and the reality is, that t
gore wins the state of florida. >> cnn announces that we call florida in the al gore column. >> florida goes for al gore. >> schieffer: in a matter of hours, we all took that back and said florida was too close to call. >> you will have 30,000 absentee ballots that aren't going to be counted until tomorrow. >> schieffer: just after 2:00 a.m., we reversed our original call and said bush had won florida and was the next president of the united states. >> bush wins. >> schieffer: less than two hours later, we retracked that call and said the election was just too close to call. >> this is no longer an election. it is like "alice in wonderland." we get stranger and stranger as alice said, fiquote her correctly. >> she's as good a person to quote right now as anybody i know. >> good evening. >> schieffer: so al gore won the popular vote but it would be well into december until the supreme court ruled that george bush had won displrd with it the presidenciy. >> i do solemnly swear... >> schieffer: our "face the nation" flashback. i'm a conservative investor. i invest in what i know. i turned

dominant that by the time john adams signed, john and cnn's becomes president, he's a democrat. he's completely left the federalist fold. the federalist party is essentially dead. what happened then was the rest of andrew jackson on the democratic arty, much more as we know it today and became for a little while a single party except there were those in the country who are really opposed to jackson and this became the assets of the whig party. it wasn't so much a political party as an anti-jackson party and the whigs came along and henry clay perhaps, if we want to talk about forgotten people from an 18th century, henry clay isn't so much forgotten, but overlooked because he never became president. perhaps the most prominent american at this time he didn't become president. since from the subject of elections and scandal, there is a pamphlet produced when henry clay was running against james polk and said 21 reasons why henry clay should not be elected. reason number two was he spends his days at the gaming tables and his nights at the brothel. so anyone who still thinks it was nic
